Black Widow Early life
On July 9, 1971, Jeanette Lee was born in Brooklyn, New York. She was born of Korean descent since both of her parents were Korean. According to some sources, she started playing pool at the young age of 18 in 1989, and by the year 1991, she was crowned as the Best Female Player in the World. Between 1993 and 1996, she finished as a runner-up three times during World Nine-Ball Championships.
Lee won the WPA Sportsperson of the Year Award in 1998. Lee won ladies $25000 winner-take-all Tournament of Champions in 1999. Lee again won the same Championship in 2003.
Jeanette Lee is married and shares a child with her husband. Her spouse, George Breedlove, is also a professional player on the Legends circuit. The two were wed in 1996, and Jeanette gave birth to four children: three daughters and one son. One of her children is raised by Jeanette herself, while one was adopted and another was born through surrogacy.
In 2001, Jeanette was the top female billiard player in the US. She earned a Gold medal for her country at the World Games in Canada. It was a proud moment and allowed her to represent her country again at another international event against Philippine billiards champion Efren Reyes, who also won the Bronze medal that year. The match would have helped people learn more about Filipino culture, but it needed Jeanette’s participation to come together. Unfortunately, a game between these two players wasn’t possible after Jeanette lost 4-13 during their race-to-13 exhibition game in Manila.
Jeanette Lee has earned herself a formidable reputation in the professional pool world. She may have won countless championships throughout her career. Still, she also has her own list of impressive accolades, including top spots on the Fans’ Top 20 Favorite Players poll as well as being listed at No. 60 by Pool & Billiard Magazine as one of “The 75 Greatest Players of the Last 75 Years” in 2007.
Jeanette Lee has been praised for her exceptional billiard career. In 2013, she was inducted into the “Billiards Congress of America Hall of Fame.” Lee is no longer playing billiards due to scoliosis– curvature of the spine has plagued her since middle school. Even now, she suffers from this disease, but it hasn’t stopped her from being number one in her field. (For a story related to Monopoly, please find the link here .) Lee is also battling breast cancer that has spread to several organs in her body. Sources have said she may not live past October 2014.
Besides being a professional pool player, Jeanette is also the owner of a local franchise of the GoFundMe campaign, which has mainly focused on the Tampa area. After becoming an advocate for girls being provided with appropriate care for college and making sure girls get there by offering scholarships, she has been involved.
The estimated net worth of Jeanette Lee is $7 million as of 2022, although this amount is set to change yearly. This is partly because most of her earnings have come from her career as a professional pool (or billiards) player for her local company of the American Poolplayers Association.
